I'm glad you've revisited this thread too. You certainly are the master of 1/200! I've heard that Bob's models are tricky. If that's true then you've done well in this small scale.

Thanks, guys. Must admit that Bob's models are not perfect and at times not accurate but that's the point of paper modelling that calls for your skills and ways and means to put things right. So are LadNDad models that I think are the most challenging. I remember doing one LND model aircraft that the left and right fuselage parts were so at odds that I had to mirror the left part of the fuselage and flip it horizontally to make it the right one by using Photoshop. For Bob's models, just some trimming of the parts will normally solve the unfit problems for most of the time. Having said that, I have very high regards for the abovementioned designers who have contributed very much to the paper modelling community. My kudos to them, again!

Just a picture to show what a blunder I have made for not reading the instructions diligently first. Only at that this stage do I know that the engine shells (don't know if it's right to call them that) should be built and inserted into the vertical struts first before proceeding further. Now, the dilemma is how to do it. My first attempt so far is to cut the appropriate slots of the so called engine shell template, build it, and then cut the vertical struts. Then insert the engine shell, position it to the right place as marked and then re-attach the vertical strut with an appropriate strip of scrap card. The con is that the vertical strut may become not too vertical unless some effort is needed to ensure that it stays vertical after the surgery. What other ways can you guys suggest that I should do?

There seem to be plenty of other supporting struts around it, so maybe cut the engine fairing struts but leaving 1 or 2mm on each end to go into the top and and bottom of the engine fairing. With matching holes cut into the fairing, slide it on the lower strut far enough then tilt it and slide back up over the bottom part of the upper strut. Straighten it all out then glue from the INSIDE of the fairing.
Might work.

One cone and one truncated cone

Dear Papermate:
Here is my solution, convert the engine shells from one cone, to one smaller cone plus one truncated cone with notches for the struts.
In my humble opinion, leave the struts as they are. You have done similar things for your spinners and engines.

There is a number of truncated cones calculators and Bruno's techniques.

or modify the cones that you already have. I recommend that you enlarge them to 1/100 or 1/50 to practice before you do your reconstructive surgery.

Good look, and be patient and careful!

ps: It is nice to see your 1/200 models again.

Thanks for your advices, Rata and Wireandpaper. I'll evaluate your methods before I move on and may have to do some trail or practices to get it done. Thanks anyway for your prompt replies.

OK, the engines are now mounted and thanks go to Rata and wireangpaper's advices that I have taken into consideration to get the job done. Here's some update.

Neat work! Interesting comparison to Péricles latest effort. Of course much smaller.....
